Is that the only format the vendor supplied the font in? If they have a .ttf version, see if they'll allow you to download that. You can use a .ttf font on both the Mac in OS X and Windows.
If an FFIL (Mac OS 9 or earlier suitcase font) is all they have, then you'll need to convert it. You can download the trial version of TransType and use that. The trial should allow you to convert one font without having to purchase the product.
Otherwise, there's the free open source Font Forge.
I tried TransType, but the demo version puts a watermark on most the letters.
Ah, they changed it then. Some time back, it would allow you to do six fonts as a test.
I'll give Font Forge a try.
I'm pretty sure you'll have to install the X11 software to use it, but that should do it. It's a full featured font editor and creator.
